With the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi starting this week, what better way to get you in the mood for the Games by reliving some of the most memorable moments in its 90-year history.
While amongst this collection are Brits - performing both admirably and bravely in equal measure - there are also tales of showboating Americans, plucky Australian contenders and heroic Austrian recoveries.
Not all the moments included here are inspirational though - it would seem the Winter Olympics can also inspire violent tendencies and medal-changing controversies.
